Modern information technology is part and parcel of everyday business life, a reality that raises a number of legal issues. A lawyer specializing in IT law can guide you through the regulatory framework.
Businesses today can no longer afford to neglect modern information technology, even though advances in this area give rise to complex legal issues. The team at MTR Legal Rechtsanwälte, which advises on all aspects of IT law, includes experts in IT law whose technical know-how complements their legal expertise.
Among the core concerns of IT law is the drafting of contracts. With the wide variety of contract models making it difficult to stay on top of things, an experienced IT lawyer can single out the most suitable contract model in any situation.
One of the more prominent types of agreement is software license agreements. These regulate the extent to which rights of use are granted in return for a fee. Given that companies are not always dealing with standard software but also with software solutions tailored to the requirements of the company in question, the way in which the contract is drafted assumes particular importance. Since this potentially affects sensitive aspects of the business, it is advisable to consult an IT lawyer.
It is also important to account for the possibility of maintenance work and updates having to be performed on the licensed software. For this reason, it may be worthwhile signing a support and maintenance agreement.
The IT sector is no stranger to the increasingly significant role of outsourcing. Naturally, data protection is a concern when external service providers assume certain responsibilities. Because outsourcing agreements are usually extremely complex, it is always a good idea to involve a lawyer who is well-versed in this field.
The protection of intellectual property also features prominently in IT law, it being necessary to respect copyrights, patent rights, and trademark rights. And once again, an experienced attorney can provide much-needed legal certainty in the context of drafting intricate, IP-related contracts.
